Actors are not the only artists in theater, nor are they the most important, but all artists in the theater (playwrights, directors, designers and actors) start from the premise that the essence of our art is actors engaging with an audience, and that our common goal is to explore and enhance the live, communal experience that is at the heart of theater.
The course of study combines the best aspects of conservatory training with the practical experience of a three-year internship at a professional theater, enhanced by the academic courses and credentials supplied by a university degree program. Students graduating from the program should have the skills necessary to work as actors, directors, teachers or a combination of all three.
